Speaker Lineup

Chad Varga
Opening Keynote Speaker

Name:
Chad Varga

Title:
Former NBA Basketball Player & National Motivational Speaker - The Chad Varga Company

Why Chad?

Chad Varga is INCREDIBLY cool because he should have been a statistic, but instead he beat insurmountable odds and every obstacle before him to become a highly decorated professional basketball player. Then, at the height of his career with contracts guaranteeing financial security for him and his family, he left it all to pursue a greater purpose: helping others achieve their dreams no matter the odds and obstacles before them.

And, he can't wait to...

…Be in front of Wyoming students and inspire them to be the very best versions of themselves. He will create a fire inside of you! Encourage you. CHANGE you! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?!

Panelist and Speaker

Name:
Megan Grassell

Title:
Founder/CEO - Yellowberry

Why Megan?

Megan started Yellowberry when she was 17 years old, a junior in high school. She took her sister shopping to buy her first bra, and was shocked that everything for her and girls her age was incredibly overly-sexualized. She had the idea to build a brand that would create bras for girls in fun colors and styles while also being age- appropriate. Seven years later, she is now a multi million dollar company that has expanded to make bras, underwear, lounge and activewear for girls 8-15 across the country and globe!

She was named to TIME’s list of Most Influential Teens, a Forbes 30 Under 30, and was even featured on the TODAY Show, GMA, NYTimes, Fortune, Fast Company, and more. Best of all, she was born and raised in our great state of Wyoming.

And, she can't wait to...

talk about how she started Yellowberry. Everything from the initial idea, building a website and prototypes to finding a factory and launching. Then, her experience in building her own team, scaling a company, raising funds, working with nationwide partners, etc. And doing all of this as a young woman with no prior experience brings up its own set of challenges.
